High Speed Rail
The High Speed Rail
Authority has released a revised business plan
for the second
time. The cost has dropped from $98 billion to $68 billion
and the route has been altered to start in the Los Angeles
area. Also, a
report recently released
shows California needs
better training programs to ensure that local workers benefit from
jobs created by the new transportation.
We'll see what's making news in
Marysville and Yuba City with Appeal-Democrat
editor Len La Barth.
RAM Free Health Care Remote Area Medical
California has finished providing four days of free
medical, dental and vision care starting at CalExpo. Hundreds
of physicians and medical practitioners closed up their practices
and volunteered their time to be a part of the event. RAM
president Pam Congdon joins us to explain how the event went, how
many people were served and if it will return next year.
If you are celebrating
Easter this year by going to church, you might hear some of the
usual passages from the Bible. But a good place to find the
verses you won't hear in church is a relatively new book by first
time Sacramento author Michael Morris. "Bible Funmentionables"
is funny without being
either pro- or anti-religion. Using multiple editions of the
Bible as fodder, Morris has created a book full of the comically
outdated verses of scripture preachers won't preach.
